PRESS STATEMENT ON DEVELOPMENT JOURNALISM STUDENTS FOR RELEASE TO THE MEDIA ON AUGUST 20, 2017(ELECTRONIC MEDIA)

 

Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA says she is pleased to note that students from Zambia are taking greater interest in pursuing Development Journalism studies in India.

 

The Zambian envoy says the world is expeditiously running away from the concept of ‘Bad news makes good news’ as citizens are tired of seeing wars, riots, earth quakes, deadly diseases and among others.

 

Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says Development Journalism is not easy as it needs a journalist to read widely, research, perform leg work and put in more effort to bring out analytical facts in a fascinating approach for citizens to appreciate.

 

She said this when Indian Institute of Mass Communications- IICM Development Journalism student VICTOR MWILA of Zambia News and Information Services- ZANIS and his YATSANI Radio counterpart MAYBIN KATUNGULU called on her.

 

Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says Development Journalism should celebrate the efforts by Government or individuals who are putting in new ideas to see advancement in technology, economic emancipation, human rights and among others.

 

She says President EDGAR LUNGU appreciates the role Development Journalism plays especially that he equally obtained a certificate in Journalism at Evelyn Hone College on top of his many scholarly credentials.

 

Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says a lot of Development Journalists have excelled under the leadership of President LUNGU as they became sellable thinkers of eminence.

 

She has urged the students to remain focused and industrious as they return to their respective stations in Zambia later to accomplish innovative expertise.
